Mountain Biking Highlight

    Although the Fichtelsee has its origins in mining, today it is a totally beautiful, natural and almost romantic place. In 1650, a ditch was taken from Hochgmoor to Fichtelberg in order to drain water and use it to drive the hammers. The result was that the bog dried up more and more. In 1739, for example, a dam was built: the Fichtelsee. In 1983 it was enlarged to a total of about eleven hectares.

    Around the lake you can ride a great bike. In summer he invites you to swim or boating. In winter you can skate on an ice rink on the Fichtelseeufer. Especially cool: The ice is then illuminated and you can lend ice skates on site. Here in the north of the lake begins the nature reserve Seelohe, where you will find typical moor vegetation.

    Beautiful lake. But many day trippers on the way.
